The topic of this paper is to study and describe kinematic analysis of a door closer. By performing kinematic analysis, the velocity, acceleration and point position values are obtained. These data are important for the optimal sizing of the mechanism and supporting elements. We compare the analysis made by the graphical method with the analysis obtained with computer programs designed for kinematic analysis (SAM 8.1).
